The other day I simply did not feel like eating. Just couldn't be bothered. There was plenty to have here but I was doing stuff and just not interested and didn't feel hungry. The following day I was incredibly hungry which was no suprise Have you ever gone without for a day just because you were not interested in eating? Or maybe you have done the 40 hour famine thng.

The only time I have gone without food was when I had my children right after birth. Also when I was sick with food poisoning and another time that I had strep throat. I just wanted to sleep then. But I really can't go a day without eating. I can't concentrate if I am hungry.

I don't have a day without food. Yesterday I went to bed with hungry ( just don't full of the supper), then I dreamed other's is eating, but I don't have any food. I can't if I don't eat for full, what I will dreamed, hahaa. It's funny to dream the things you want, and I believe that's a long dream with much things happens with food.

I often go for a day without food, many reasons that I do it. Either I have eaten too much on a previous day and need to give my tum a break. Or I am hungry but just do not fancy eating anything or simply I am not at all hungry. I do not think that it does any harm at all to go without food for a day and if I do, I always drink plenty. In fact I always feel full of energy when I have had nothing to eat.

Yup I did spent a day without food. In my religion there's a day in which you have to spend a day without eating anything. Otherwise I don't think of living without food. I was really tired and it was like hell really but in order to strengthen yourself you should go without a food at least for a day.

To be honest, I have never spent a whole day without food. But I have skipped lunch ones, dinner ones and I normally dont take breakfast. I tried fasting one day but I could not make it. heheheheeeeee....my stomach is that bad.

I am a Hindu.Once in college hostel I was fasting during the Ramazan with my Muslim friends to know what fasting is.It was a wonderful experience trying one of the practices of another religion at least for one day.I think that every one must know at least once in their life what hunger pang is to know the sufferings of millions of poor around us.

I have but very very rarely. The times that i have gone without food for a day are usually because i'm really sick and just don't feel well enough to eat. Other then that i could not go without food for a day at all.

I've tried going through a day without eating. Not because i wasn't interested in eating (i love it) but because i had no time to. :-)

Years ago I went just under 4 days without food (didn't make it to 4 days because I felt like I was about to black out even when I was laying down! I kinda scared myself), I did drink though, whenever fast I always drink. I tend to not drink as much when I'm not eating though. Back then when I went that long I often had 1-3 day fasts, it was normal. These days it is much harder for me to fast for long periods of time because I end up getting really dizzy. I always got that way to a certain point, but after a lot longer. More recently I have done 1 day fasts and restrictive days. I do like the feeling of being empty though, because I really hate to feel so full, so a fast sometimes is a welcome change. Typically I have 1 or 2 meals a day, and some snacks here and there if I feel like it.

I never avoid food purposely. But today I didn't eat that much. I was simply not hungry. Most days I'm at least a little bit hungry. But not today. I ate some french fries and a sweet roll and was good for the day. Then a small snack and called it a day.
